Effect of Long-Term Treatment with Fimasartan on Transient Focal Ischemia in Rat Brain

Figure 3

Measurements of infarct volume and ischemic cell death. (a) Sham operations did not make any infarct lesions in the brain (). The infarct volume in the low-dose fimasartan group (0.5 mg/kg, ) decreased significantly compared to the PBS-control with MCAO group ( by Bonferroni correction, ), but there was no difference between the regular-dose group and PBS-controls with MCAO ( for 1 mg/kg = 0.21 and for 3 mg/kg = 0.12; each). (b) Ischemic cell death, evaluated by TUNEL staining, decreased in the low-dose fimasartan group compared with the PBS-control with MCAO group (; each). Representative TUNEL-positive cells (dark brown color) are indicated by black arrows, and TUNEL-negative cells are counterstained by methyl green (blue color). Scale bar = 50 μm.
